Not exactly, I watched the fight gone bad video because I wanted to see if crossfit is something I would like to add to my workout... The guy explaining it clearly said, "I didn't want stamina to be a factor in the thing." HIIT is all out and crossfit is clearly not all out and they actually do all excercises somewhat slow faster than traditional weight lifting though. The people in crossfit pace themselves while HIIT you start at 100% effort and hopefully end each interval at 100%. I'm not criticizing crossfit for it's merrits, but it is clearly not HIIT. I also said that one program is not as effective without the other, but doing purely crossfit, cardio, or hiit will never bring about top level athletes who constantly mix it up.
